CTE in full LAN client should allow "disconnected use" using web/Automatic views.

CTE, on a host running the "Full" LAN client, will attempt to connect to the LAN-based ClearCase environment (License/registry/vob/etc. servers) when connecting to a WAN server or listing the user's views. This can cause the UI to stall, report license and other errors, etc.

This can lead to confusion about whether there is an actual issue as the errors reported when the LAN resources aren't available are nearly identical to problems that would be reported when the WAN server login fails.
